Over the last 15 years The Branford Group's management team has worked with numerous riggers and transportation companies around the world. As a team, we have developed strong relationships with outside rigging and logistics providers. As a result, The Branford Group's operation division works to suggest and schedule independent service providers for crating, packing, shipping and storing for each of our sales events. Our goal is simple, to provide price competitive rigging options combined with reliable service for our buyers.
*The Branford Group does not pack, ship, store, crate or rig items. Buyers may either pick up their items at the designated auction site personally or can arrange for a third party logistics firm to manage the removal process for them. If someone other than the registered buyer at the sale is designated to pick up those purchased assets, the buyer must:
1) Contract with an independent logistics firm or other representative who will dismantle, crate, pack, or ship your purchased items.
2) Coordinate the removal of those purchased items to meet the time deadlines indicated on this page.
3) Submit an "Agent Release Authorization" form which will allow The Branford Group to release items to a third party contractor for shipping, crating or packing purposes.
Since The Branford Group does not ship the items, we do not obtain/prepare any export licenses/documents.
*The Branford Group finds and displays one or more local logistics service providers who understand our removal process, offer specific services, and have certain skills and capacities. We offer this service to you without representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever.
The Branford Group is not affiliated with any machinery rigging, transport or export company. We provide the names and contact information of available companies solely as a courtesy to our buyers. The Branford Group does not endorse or guarantee the services of any machinery rigging, transport or export company, and cannot be held responsible for any damage, omission or other problems incurred as a result of the actions of those companies. Buyers are encouraged to utilize a service provider of their choice, provided they supply The Branford Group with the required forms and insurance certificates.
For most auctions, we list a select number of rigging and shipping companies to assist our buyers. If you are interested in being listed as a service provider in one of our upcoming auctions, please fill out a Rigger Certificate Form
